The Design Essentials: iPad Apps for the Creative - Design Milk | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Quietly and almost covertly, Apple’s iPad has become a common tool in every realm of professional design. Fashion designers sketch on it, designers collect and curate ideas using it, digital artists paint with it in stunning realism, and architects even prepare 3D models before going to production all from the 9.7″ screen. The device is a near ubiquitous sight inside studios, design shops, and most noticeably at trade shows, an ideal compromise when the pocketability of the smartphone is too little and a laptop is just too large. For a demographic regularly relying upon composing, showing, and sharing projects, the iPad is Goldilocks perfect. Here are several of our favorite iPad apps for creatives with content creation and collaboration in mind.”

Build a Simple Robot with a Tensegrity Structure | Make: ^ by Kathy Ceceri

Build a Simple Robot with a Tensegrity Structure | Make: ^ by Kathy Ceceri | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“A tensegrity structure can flex, stretch, compress when dropped or pressed, and then spring back into shape. It also has a high degree of compliance, which means it won’t harm people or equipment around it. That, together with its resilience, makes tensegrity a useful framework for robots that need to withstand jolts or squeeze and twist themselves through irregular spaces.The directions for assembling this six-strut tensegrity structure out of drinking straws and rubber bands are based on a tensegrity icosahedron holiday ornament project from Bre Pettis that appeared on the Make: website in 2007.”

It also uses a QR code or 9-digit mirroring ID to connect, making it easy for teachers and students to mirror their devices. Teachers can easily save recently connected computers in a favorite list for future connections. In a BYOD environment students with any device can mirror their screen so teachers and students can connect, model, and share easily.”

30 Lessons For Teachers From Dr. Seuss - TeachThought

30 Lessons For Teachers From Dr. Seuss - TeachThought | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Dr. Seuss is gold–whimsical and visually interesting traipses through surreal worlds, and always full of life advice.

And life advice is learning advice, and learning advice–well, that’s why we’re all here, yes?

There are themes below that apply directly to the responsibilities of a teacher. Let’s face it–teaching is an emotional roller coaster, and a microcosm for life itself, full of tedium and wonder, disappointment and triumph, down days and days to celebrate. Take #11 for example–you have brains in your head and feet on your choose, you can steer yourself any direction you choose–can be both encouragement to elementary students, or high school students taking themselves–and life–too seriously

3 Ways to Cultivate a Growth Mindset - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman

3 Ways to Cultivate a Growth Mindset - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck’s best-selling book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, started a revolution in most of the schools that I work in this year, and for good reason: her findings are inspiring teachers and students and parents alike to rethink what it means to be a successful learner and what dispositions we must cultivate in order to make that vision a reality.

This a complex study, and reflecting as we read brings interesting considerations to the surface. For instance, how can we stop perseverating on performance in order to cultivate a growth mindset?

Innovation Does Not Happen in Schools If a Child Does Not Feel Loved - @gcouros

Innovation Does Not Happen in Schools If a Child Does Not Feel Loved - @gcouros | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
When students tell me about some of the things that they deal with, even at such an early age, I think about how strong they are to show up to school every single day, and how privileged we are to be able to serve them.  Not only should we have high expectations for our students, but we need to also have high beliefs in what they can accomplish.  Innovation does not happen in schools if a child does not feel loved.  This can’t be the job of some teachers; it has to be all.  I will take a teacher that loves and believes in their students over one that is extremely innovative yet lacks the aforementioned qualities.
